Reflection: Quizzes Character Analysis Formative Assessment - Section 2: Independent Work


As I showed in the video earlier, by giving this quiz I was able to catch some student misconceptions. A few of my kiddos have a hard time when multiple characters are involved in the story and I have to work with them on making sure they know which character is doing what. I want to revisit this and maybe give each character a color and then we can highlight their actions, thoughts, etc in that specific color. Also, I think they just need more time reading and thinking about what they know about the characters, so I'll build some of that into my workstations through out the rest of the unit. We'll  hit this again in the poetry and drama unit as well.
